The WFTU representing 92 million workers in 126 countries strongly condemns the curfew imposed in Tunisia by the Tunisian Government. The curfew complements the state violence used as a response to the slogan “work is a right” last week.
The unemployment in Tunisia has risen to 15.3% and it’s much higher in youth. We denounce the continuing curtailment of fundamental freedoms and rights in Tunisia by the government such as the right to strike and struggle for the right of employment.
We call again the Tunisian people to join the ranks of the class-oriented movement in their country and to keep up the fight for better wages, for employment to everyone, against national and international monopolies.
